    I've done the double collar (mostly with an OCBD underneath) with my Criquet long sleeve polos. They're a bit heavier fabric than a normal polo, so more of a sweater/sweatshirt than a polo. I like the look, although it's def a bit preppy/throwback.

    What are you saying, you’re not a fan of the popped collar on popped collar on popped collar look?

    Nice, I think walnut strands are the quintessential AE shoe and really showcase AE at its best. It's one of my go to shoes anytime lighter pants or suits come out.

    I am a 15.5" slim at S&M and it seems to match with a Large at Bonobos so you may want an XL? Just compare chest measurements.

    [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] that was exactly my feelings. I figured I would give it a try and if it doesnt work out, not a big loss. Can always wear them as an under layer.

    BUT STILL NOT FOR NAVY SUITS

    Will post WIWT pics later.
    Walnut brogues just work with a variety of outfits. AE walnut has a variety of shades so it will be interesting to see what shade yours end up being. Nice pickup.

    I have wanted a couple long sleeve polos. At $14, it seems like a no brainer.

    There is a lot of research about happiness and buying things vs. experiences and how experiences in the long term win out but all of my Carminas have been celebratory purchases and I love them every time I put them on my feet.

    The lighting makes that look brown, but it is grey houndstooth.

    Here are all of them

    Houndstooth, grey. Wool.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI5CSW/
    Lowest price is currently $132.

    Nailhead, blue. Wool.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI5O9O/
    Lowest price is currently $127

    Windowpane, blue, brown, or charcoal green. Wool.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI3L9E/
    Lowest price is current $127

    Solid textured, blue. Wool.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI6P92/
    Lowest price is currently $218

    White large check, blue. 75/25 Wool/polyamide.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI4KDU/
    Lowest price is currently $126

    Small check, grey/raspberry, blue. Wool.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI4V20/
    Lowest price is currently $149

    Tonal large check, blue. 75/25 Wool/polyamide.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI47W4/
    Lowest price is currently $81

    Herringbone, grey, charcoal. 62/38 Wool/silk
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YGI5UIY/
    Lowest price is currently $123

    Do keep in mind that these are all Euro sizing. That's why they keep getting returned.

    Also, the regular is 1"–1.5" shorter than other sports jackets I have in regular. I measured 30.5" down the middle of the back of both laid flat.
